2010 Washington DC Dragon Boat Festival Photos: Positioning Boats for the Races

I was in a spot for a lot of my photos where I had a very good view of the boats approaching the starting line. I had a camera, on a tripod, and so I shot photos. Many are on the dragon boat team portrait page, but some more are here.
